jrob21 (3841) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Sample at HMOG. Port dominates over the brett here adding a little too much flavor and sweet wine. The brett is too delicate to carry this and not really working for me.

phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle sampled at Mark’s gigantic tasting. 2015 vintage. Pours a cloudy pale orange-gold with a moderate off white head that settles into a thickish ring and a bit of film. The funkiness satisfies more in the aroma than the flavor. Notes of bretty funk, apricot, citrus fruits, pineapple, bready malts, wet straw, grass, and florals. Medium-bodied, with a bretty, fruity, surprisingly booze-forward mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Some others in the group complained about this one, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

hopscotch (11334) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Draft... Hunahpu’s Hangover Day 2015... Pours lightly hazed and amber with orange highlights and a small, wispy, white head. Full-bodied w tickling. Quite the malt bill here. Malty and spicy nose and flavor. Yeast-driven phenols all over the place. Some pear esters. Finishes acrid and sweet.
Earlier Rating: 4/6/2015 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle... RBWG 2015… Pours hazy and golden with a small, brief, white head. The fruity and citric nose features a marriage of key lime and Meyer lemon. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is lightly bitter with a crisp and refreshing finish. Not as acidic as I had hoped.

Theydon_Bois (20939) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle at the brew pub, RBWG pour buse, 20/02/15.
Golden orange topped with a decent off white swirl.
Nose is funky, brett strokes, dung, plummy, pissy citrics, apricot.
Taste comprises tangy fruit, bitter apricot, funk, pissoi, light tropical notes, damp straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, subtle port in the finale tinged with brett strokes and wood must.
Solid funked up BA saison.

markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2015
On draft at Hunahpu 2015. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some malt, hay, lemon, leather, and oak. Flavor is similar with an oaky, leathery, lemony, barnyard punch and a bit of vinous character all over. Light in body and very nice overall.
Earlier Rating: 3/3/2015 Total Score: 3.9
Bottle at 7venth Sun. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a white head. Nose is citrus, funk, sweet fruit, saison yeast, some apple. Flavor is similar with sweet fruit, sweet malt, some funk, some yeast, and bits of apple. Light to medium in body, full of awesomeness and brett.

3.6
jackl (8454) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle shared during RBWG. Light amber pour with a small head. The nose is pretty tart. Plenty of peach orchard. Musty plum skin. Mild balsamic and red fruits. Buggy wild character. Taste of vanilla accented woody. Dry bretty tartness. Red berry, apple, dried manure. Loads going on here. Medium body, active carbonation. Interesting stuff.

3.8
Travlr (26295) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Hazy golden yellow color, white spider web lacing. Aroma of vinous vanilla and haystacks. Taste has a decent amount of tannins and a bit of funk. Tasty stuff.

Bottle at the source, RBWG 2015. Nice aroma of barnyrad, dust, fruit, light tannins. Taste is funky and fruity.

3.5
brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. A little bit of haze to an orange pour with white foam. Smells like sweet white wine and citrus preserves. Slight citrus tang, some oak, and a hint of grass. Perhaps a hint of yeast to the flavor. Pineapple juice, banana, and sweet dessert wine. Maybe a bit of chalky oak barrel on the back end. Mildly acidic and tart.

3.8
jbruner (5403) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2015
Pours a hazy gold from the bottle with thin bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big barrel notes over funky brett qualities. Taste is semisweet malt over funk. Nice balance, mild carbonation, booze is well hidden, good stuff.

3.7
burg326 (5621) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Poured a yellow color with aromas of leather, barnyard, light sweet wine, and some oak. Flavors matched the aromas, funk, light wine, and some tawneyness, and wet wood. Solid and enjoyable, glad I got to try this one.
